On 09.10.2017 I travelled to Cologne, because right at the beginning of my first practical phase I started with the rotation in Cologne. When I arrived in Cologne, I met my department all of them were very nice to me, so that I could quickly feel at home. I gained a good insight into Solution Management in Cologne, as I was also allowed to take part in the weekly team meeting, I got to know all the projects that are currently up to date. I could support Gerald Wildmoser in his work, and I was able to help design the new RMI portal, which is part of the OE catalogue, and to create a usability test, carry it out and evaluate it afterwards. I had a lot of fun doing this task, so I enjoyed going to work every day. The mentality in Cologne is noticeably different, there aren´t few colleagues here who prefer to start work early in the morning, so that many take the chance to start work at nine o’ clock in the morning. I was also able to do some work for other colleagues and get to know their tasks a little better.
On Thursday the 16.11.2017 we went back to Weikersheim, because there was an IT-Basic-Course offered by Simon Röhm for us new apprentices and students, who didn’t learn IT directly. I also had the opportunity to participate in the team meeting of the entire Solution Management team. Generally, I can say that it was a good time in Cologne and in Solution Management.
